A Guide to Integra Receivers

Anyone who loves premium home theater sound knows the Integra name. The company is known for creating top quality, world class home theater components, and the impressive line of Integra receivers are the backbone of an Integra home theater system. For audiophiles and newcomers alike, Integra offers a receiver that forms the basis for great sound quality across a wide range of applications.

Integra receivers have generally been considered to be dealer-installed products, which means they aren’t often the choice of the do it yourself home theater market. These top of the line products will function best when installed correctly by an expert, but recently the direct to consumer market has started to open up for Integra products, and more amateur audio lovers have taken on the installation of the products themselves. The price point of the Integra receivers has usually kept them in that dealer-installed market, but recent additions to the lineup have been quite competitive and are becoming more popular with those who already enjoy Integra’s sister product line, Onkyo.
